About the Work

In 1981, in Hollywood, I saw the mock-up for David Lean's "The Bridge on the River Kwai". So it was with particular interest in February 1992 that I travelled to Thailand to see the real bridge in the real place. Unlike the wooden version in the film, the real bridge has always been made of steel. Nearby is a Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery. I referenced this by including a plaque from the cemetery.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
